Samsung Galaxy M Is in Fact a Downgraded Galaxy R, With Super AMOLED Display However
If you know the Samsung Galaxy R handset, then you’ll recognize its design in the just announced Samsung Galaxy M handset, that went official in Korea. The shell remains the same and reminds me more of a Wave series handset thanks to the metallic case, rather than the usual plasticky Galaxy family.
Samsung Galaxy M comes with a 4 inch Super AMOLED display, that replaces the Super Clear LCD screen on the Galaxy R model. Also, the newcomer swaps a dual core Tegra 2 processor for a single core 1 GHz unit and the camera goes down to 3 megapixels instead of 5. The Galaxy M is a Gingerbread handset, one with a waistline that measures a bit under 10mm and also packing a TV tuner, a metallic body and Bluetooth 3.0. The price expected here is around $500 and 3 color versions will be available: Platinum Silver, Blue Black and Lavender Pink.
The specs of this new Galaxy series phone also include 4GB of internal memory and a 1650 mAh battery. I’m really wondering if the price tag of $500 isn’t a bit too much for a single core smartphone, considering the alternatives…
